LETTER TO THE MINISTRY OF YOUTH
AND SPORT BUCHAREST, ROMANIA

 

 

To the MINISTRY OF YOUTH AND SPORT BUCHAREST, ROMANIA CH-Schindellegi, 12 Dec., 2013
To, His Excellency, Minister NICOLAE BANICIOIU.

Your Excellency,
We would like to inform you, in 5 October 2013, We have sent you an email for your information regarding the changes made in the Romanian karate world after the splitting in two of the Romania Traditional Karate Federation in 13 June, 2013.
Until this day (13 June 2013) the Romania Traditional Karate Federation was a legal member of the World Traditional Fudokan Shotokan Karate-Do Federation (WTFSKF) – the only registered and recognized entity in the world in this domain worldwide. Based on the affiliation in WTFSKF the Romania Traditional Karate Federation had in the last ten years the recognition of the Sport and Youth Ministry in Romania.
All the certificates, medals and results from the international competitions was recognized by MTS.
Regarding the fact that from June 2013 FRKT is not anymore the member of WTFSKF we consider necessary to inform you that FRKT has preferred to make their affiliation to an another entity, so-called World Fudokan Federation (WFF) is actually a sports association (with the status of a foundation) which was recorded strictly in territory of Serbia without any international recognition and competence. They took this name World Fudokan Federation – without respecting any international law and having no worldwide registration.
In the period 27 November – 2 December 2013, FRKT have participating in a championship organized by WFF in Prague where possibly they have achieved some results. Given the operational illegality of WFF, we consider that the results obtained in this championship from Prague cannot be recognized legally neither by MTS nationwide nor by the territorial sport directorates. We're convinced that you will make the right decision about resolving this situation in the legal bases.
Regarding this situation we would like to inform you that WTFSKF have proceeded already sending WFF in front of the International Sport Court (TAS-CAS).

All of these are a policy of disinformation and denigration practiced by WFF by publishing these false documents without any legal cover and they have managed to create confusions and basically the divisions (breakings) of the karate clubs in Romania.
In the same time we inform you most of the FRKT clubs been have reregistered as the Romanian Fudokan Karate Federation and have participated in the 5th World Karate Championship in Walcz, Poland 27 Nov. 2 Dec. 2013 organized by the WTFSKF. In this competition Romania have obtained 95 gold, 52 Silver and 40 Bronze medals. We consider that these are the unique legal and official results which we have published in the Official Bulletin on the WTFSKF website www.wtfskf.org.
We believe that you and the leadership of the MTS will recognize only these results, because they are the only legal based results.

Dear Minister by this official address I wanted to let you know the reality and showing the correct information to you and to the institution you are running MTS.
For any questions or clarifications I am at your disposal any time.

I wish you all the best and to your family.
Sincerely yours,

LETTER TO THE MINISTRY OF YOUTH
AND SPORT BUCHAREST, ROMANIA

 

 

 


To the MINISTRY OF YOUTH AND SPORT BUCHAREST, ROMANIA CH-Schindellegi, 5 October, 2013
To, His Excellency, Minister NICOLAE BANICIOIU.

Following the information received regarding the emails that MTS has received from Serbia (documents that we have attached) World Traditional Fudokan Shotokan Karate -do Federation with the official headquarter in Switzerland wishes to note the followings:
- WTFSKF believes that MTS was misinformed by the documents sent because the so-called entity World Fudokan Federation (WFF) is actually a sports association (with the status of a foundation) which was recorded strictly in territory of Serbia without any international recognition and competence. They took this name World Fudokan Federation – without respecting any international law and having no worldwide registration.
- We believe this is a serious violation of WTFSKF interests and we cannot accept that your ministry to be misinformed, especially as it has a negative effect on the karate in Romania.
- The reality is that the Romanian Traditional Karate Federation was full member of WTFSKF until June 2013. After the splitting of the Romanian Traditional Karate Federation (in June 2013) they withdrew from WTFSKF and also a large part of karate clubs have resigned from the Romanian Traditional Karate Federation and have established a new Karate organization which have submitted to MTS the necessary documents already to became the only legal representative of our federation in Romania – and who are already members of WTFSKF. Regarding of this situation only you have to decide.
- I would like to inform you dear Minister, the documents you have received from Serbia signed by Mr.  Vladimir Jorga and Mr. Ilija Jorga (we do not understand in which quality and right) stated that the Romanian Traditional Karate Federation was a member of WTFSKF which later would become the WFF ... totally unreal.  I would like to express myself again WTFSKF has nothing to do with WFF and denies the WFF and its any action. We consider this is a denigration of WTFSKF and we will proceed to send WFF in front of the International Sport Court (TAS-CAS).
- Also that Mr. Vladimir Jorga have sent the official letter to MTS on behalf of ETKF (this entity has never had even a legal or statutory registration office anywhere in the world – practically they do not exist in legal form) we consider this unacceptable.
- Regarding ITKF, as you probably know this entity was dismantled after the death of their mentor Sensei Hidetaka Nishiyama… today ITKF has no activity. However in the document sent to you and signed by Ilija Jorga he speaks about a so-called recognition by the International Olympic Committee – that’s totally wrong, ITKF has never been accepted by the I.O.C. because their internal struggles which unfortunately continues today. I am very sorry but even if it is not our problem we wanted to make aware of the international karate situation in these days.
- All of these are a policy of disinformation and denigration practiced by WFF by publishing these false documents without any legal cover and they have managed to create confusions and basically the divisions (breakings) of the karate clubs in Romania.
Dear Minister by this official address I wanted to let you know the reality and showing the correct information to you and to the institution you are running MTS.
For any questions or clarifications I am at your disposal any time.

I wish you all the best and to your family.

Address: BusinessCentre Freihofmatte Etzelblickstrasse1, CH-8834 Schindellegi SWITZERLAND
Mobile: 0041 765 196 421  Office: 0041 (0)44787 02 13  Fax: 0041 (0)44787 02 03

To WTFSKF Officials and CH-Schindellegi 15.07.2013 r.
WTFSKF National Federation Members        
                                                

DECISION No: 2084/07.08.2013

Following the proposal of the WTFSKF Disciplinary  Committee and Judicial  Councellor Committee, studying the situation and according to legal procedures the WTFSKF Executive Committee have decided the following:

1. Suspending from the membership in WTFSKF of the national organizations which supports the so-called “World Fudokan Federation”;

2. Excluding prof. Dr. Ilija Jorga from the WTFSKF;

3. Publishing reliable information regarding Illia Jorga and his role in creating Fudokan Karate.

Note 1. 

Activities of the national federations supporting creation of the so-called WFF seriously infringe WTFSKF statutory norms. The concept that the illegal so-called „Cacak Congress”, organized breaching the statute and without participation of authorized delegates, without any agenda or list of participants, proves that these organizations do not follow in any extent the idea of federacy in karate movement. It proves that they understand democracy in wrong way, which already in the past resulted – as a matter of fact – in disregard for civilized forms. Moreover, succumbing to the particular interests of prof. Dr Ilija Jorga and their own business calculations, these federations show how far they have diverged from the principles of dividing sport from pure commerce, referred to as a threat by the Olympic Charter in section 2 p. 10 and the Olympic oath spoken by the IOC members: „I undertake (… ) to keep myself free from any political or commercial influence […] (section 16 p 1.3 of the Olympic Charter of 2011.)


Note 2. 

Prof. Dr Ilija Jorga, using his former position in WTFSKF authorities, organized and conducted with the assistance of the Serbian Fudokan Karate Federation the so-called “Cacak Congress” – a completely illegal and non-statutory event. Illegal nature of this meeting can be proved at least by the lack of any agenda which would be published before the meeting.  Prof. Jorga claims that the meeting was dictated by the care for Fudokan development. We believe that the said care was, as a matter of fact, justified by the sport development of Fudokan karate as a strictly federative  organization, where there is no place for private financial interests of even the greatest masters.
Hence, such an activity should be treated as an intentional act in one’s own interest, violating the WTFSKF statutory rights and rules.

Note 3.

Since, as a matter of fact, Prof. Dr Ilija Jorga usurps the right to the alleged ownership of  Fudokan Karate, it seems purposeful to indicate the decisive role of the master Taiji Kase in the process of forming Fudokan Karate.

The term “Founder” used in WTFSKF publications in relation to Prof. Dr. Ilija Jorga in a simplified wording is misleading, which is used by the latter to propagate the idea of Fudokan as his exclusive property.

The present communicate it is the Official position of the WTFSKF Executive Committee, and the present decision takes effect immediately according to the law in force.
